Apple Does Something Good Or Is It Bad?Posted by Phil Ferguson on December 31st, 2010 – 1 Comment – Posted in atheists, religion
From the baptist press.
At issue is an iPhone/iPad software program containing the text of the Manhattan Declaration, a 4,700-word document that includes basic Christian teachings and Bible verses on marriage, life and religious liberty. Key leaders such as Charles Colson, James Dobson, Richard Land, R. Albert Mohler Jr. and Timothy Dolan signed the document in 2009, and more than 480,000 people subsequently signed it online. It received widespread media coverage. Among its stances, the document opposes “gay marriage,” abortion and embryonic stem cell research.
Apple pulled the free app from its online store in November, saying it “violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people.”
I find it offensive. Good for apple. The potential down side is that Apple could also decide that the skeptics guide to the bible is offensive also. Censorship is a problem and this is why I have problems with Apple.
